Some really spectacular pieces of art on display. Went with a guide, and that really helped to place everything and explain the exhibits.

Check the programme of this Gallery when you're in Moscow. Sometimes they have great exhibitions. Even if the 19th, 20th century Russian art is not familiar to you, it can blow you away!

This gallery is placed on the banks of the Moscow river and right across of Gorky Park. It is a huge 1960's style building which is in my opinion worth seeing. There is cloakroom, restrooms, small shop and cafeteria on the 1st floor. Their 3 floors contain huge collection of Russian modern art (19-20th century). You can also see Russian abstract art, constructivists, cubists, expressionists etc... Couple of rooms contain collection of art which represent soviet propaganda. Behind this Museum there is also Museon park where you can see great collection of sculptures of the same era and have a bite. . Great experience and worth seeing for sure.

Oh my! For the lover of art history or one who enjoys seeing the development of techniques over recent transitions in history, this is the place. Well curated, great special exhibits, beautiful location, manageable size- really great stuff. Sad to say that despite the beautiful structure, it appears to be not as well maintained as it could be. I loved being able to get so close to the paintings that brush strokes & techniques were highly noticeable. Fabulous!

We visited this huge museum of Russian modern art on an afternoon especially to see the Golovin works. I call him the painter of roses as most of his works contain roses even on his very manly looking senoritas. We also saw some bizarre b&w work by Prigov. But the costumes and stage sets for the Bolshoi operas by Fedorovsky were show-stopping. We "dined" at the very Soviet-style cafeteria downstairs on Soviet soup, sad Soviet fish, and hard bread--a dining experience you might want to avoid.
